    1917-D Dime, MS67 Full Bands
    Intricately Detailed and Pristine
    The Sole Finest Example Known

    1917-D 10C MS67 Full Bands NGC. The 1917-D is a notable condition rarity in the Mercury dime series that is otherwise fairly obscure on the radar of collectors. The '17-D is the rarest of the three mint issues of this year in high grade, and it is nearly unknown in MS67 Full Bands. This splendid Superb Gem is the sole finest Full Bands 1917-D dime known. NGC and PCGS each report a single non-Full Bands coin in this numeric grade, but neither piece competes with the sharpness of this example. The central devices are tack-sharp with fully rounded horizontal bands, and the peripheries are comparably bold with broad, squared rims. Rich, luminous surfaces display a blend of sea-green, olive, and rose-gold hues with no underlying abrasions. There are no recent auction realizations for this coin, so we can only imagine the bidding competition that will take place when the finest-known 1917-D Mercury dime crosses the auction block.(Registry values: N7079)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23H3, PCGS# 4913)

    Weight: 2.49 grams
